Austin FC to Start Inaugural Season This Month

We enjoyed the exciting March Madness tournament last month. University of Texas women’s basketball had a good run. And Texas’s own Baylor University’s men’s basketball has been crowned National Champions. Congrats to them!

Now that March Madness is over, where can you get your professional sports fix? How about at Austin FC? The team starts its inaugural season and plays its first-ever game this weekend! Unfortunately, it’s an away game.

Their first-ever home game is on Saturday, June 19. The reason for the long way is because the team needs to recruit and train stadium employees.

Visit the team’s website to see the badge that contains the team’s colors of bright verde and black. The signature color represents the vibrancy and creative energy of Austin. The badge features two intertwined live oaks to represent the Club and City working together as one.

The oak’s four roots symbolize north, south, east, and west Austin combing together. Eleven leaves on the branches reflect the 11 players on the field being supported by fans. The city’s name appears atop the oak trees with FC on both sides of the trees to represent the sport.
